Notes:

1. Labor productivity is computed as Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per employed person.

2. Beginning 2006, employment data were based on the 2000 Census-based population projections.

3. Labor productivity data for 2014 were computed using the average of April, July and October employment data which excluded Leyte province.

For comparability, the 2014 growth rates were computed using the 2013 labor productivity data whose employment data was the average of April, July and October which excluded Leyte province.

4. Labor productivity data for 2015 were computed based on the annualized LFS data using the average of January, April, July and October employment data which excluded Leyte province.

The use of the annualized LFS data using the four survey rounds was based on the result of the referendum among members of the Inter-Agency Committee on Labor and Productivity Statistics.

For comparability, the 2015 growth rates were computed using the average of the 2015 April, July and October employment data which excluded Leyte province.

5. Starting April 2016 round, the LFS adopted the 2013 Master Sample and population projections based on the 2010 Census of Population.

Previous survey rounds adopted the 2003 Master Sample and population projections based on the 2000 CPH.

6. Labor productivity data for 2016 were computed using the average of the four survey rounds employment data with the January 2016 data based on the 2010 Census-based population projections.

7. For comparability, the 2016 growth rates were computed using the average of July and October employment data for 2015 and 2016.

 

* Less than 0.05 percent.

r Revised figures.

a For comparability of 1997 growth rate with that of 1996, the labor productivity for these two years both used employment data based on the 1980 Census-based population projections.

b For comparability of 2006 growth rate with that of 2005, the labor productivity for these two years both used employment data based on the 1995 Census-based population projections.
